A Bury St Edmunds restaurant has raised thousands for a children’s charity.

Since opening five months ago, Mowgli Street Food has raised £4,105 for My WiSH Charity through customer contributions.

The eatery encourages patrons to add £1 to their bill to support the children's appeal, WiSH Upon A Star.

The Mowgli Trust, established by founder Nisha Katona, ensures all of its 21 locations to back a children’s charity.

Fundraising manager, Sally Daniels, has worked closely with the street food restaurant and said: “We were honoured to be chosen by Mowgli as their house charity.

“As a charity we enhance care for young patients across the county.

"This is not only in the West Suffolk Hospital but out in the community at health centres and in their homes.

“All aspects of their health care are supported by our children’s appeal, from maternity to diabetes, complex care to the emergency department."

Restaurant charities co-ordinator Abbey Hides said: “When we were looking for charities in Bury St Edmunds, My WiSH embodied all of the values which we seek to adopt within our partnerships."
